Early Years in Mind from Anna Freud have a number of resources you may find useful:
They have added new content to their Working with Families facing Challenges resource including advice on supporting adoptive parents and carers from diverse communities and parents and carers who may be struggling with their own mental health.
They have also launched a series of leaflets and videos to help early years practitioners support the personal, social and emotional development (PSED) of the children in their care.
Personal, social and emotional development (PSED) is one of three prime areas within the early years foundation stage (EYFS), but it connects the whole curriculum. Through positive relationships with adults, children learn what their emotions are, how to regulate them and how relationships with their peers work.
The EYFS reforms of 2021 were all about early years practitioners spending time with children in this way, rather than being tied up in paperwork. This is because it is the interested, playful and consistent adult that makes the biggest impact on a child’s development in all areas. With this in mind, they have created these free resources that will help you to support children in your early years setting.
